Picture of Health: Images of Medicine and Pharmacy from the William H. Helfand Collection
A woman and child read advertisements for medicines in two large scrolls. The scroll on the left discusses the indications and merits of three products sold by the Rakuzendo pharmacy in Tokyo: On-Tsu-Gan, pills for constipation that were pleasant in their action; Chin-Ryu-In, a potion that was useful in various problems of the gastrointestinal tract; and Ho-Yo-Gan, pills for improving strength and well-being in several conditions, such as following childbirth. The other scroll advertises Sei-Ki-Sui, an ophthalmic product developed by an American physician. William H. Helfand, from The Picture of Health: Images of Medicine and Pharmacy from the William H. Helfand Collection (1991), p. 125.
